Interesting week for Calne Bowls Club w/c 5th May 2019

Tuesday afternoon saw the club take on Warminster at Warminster in the White Horse League and a convincing win by 24-13 saw our team take top position in Div 4.  In the evening it was a hectic club night with 10 people undergoing coaching and 2 rinks of members having a roll-up. On another rink was the first round of the county 4s. Calne, led by Martin S., were up against Chippenham Park and after a close game, Calne lost by 1 shot on the last end.

On Wednesday the weather changed and as a result the Ladies Nor-West League game at Avon B.C. was called off due to hailstones and torrential rain.

On Thursday the evening saw the men’s triples team take on Devizes at Devizes.  Luckily it eventually turned into a dry evening and a good win for Calne 75-68 12-2 points. That makes it 2 wins in a row, after beating Corsham at Corsham the previous week.

On Friday there was no game but Barry our greenkeeper spent most of the day working hard on the green.  Thanks Barry, it is appreciated.

Finally, on Saturday, it was the Lions Annual Duck Race.  It was a chilly start but warmed up as the day went on.  Our tombola did brisk business all day and a huge thank you to all the members who donated items and to Yvonne and Steve (aka Stuart!) for all their hard work and also the 2 Anns, Pat, Josie, David and last but not least Martin G for his unsinkable ducks ( if I have forgotten anyone, please accept my apologies). The day raised £184 for the club.
